The HAPPY GILMORE Quote-Along - Final Show!

"You eat pieces of shit for breakfast?"

With HAPPY GILMORE, Adam Sandler had the perfect opportunity to run wild with his favorite character - a lovable loser who loses his girlfriend in the opening act and is prone to excessive bursts of ecstatic violence. Placing that character into the world of the hallowed genre of sports films just makes it all the more golden, because the underdog HAS to win in the end, even if he gets his ass handed to him by Bob Barker along the way. Christopher McDonald's Shooter McGavin tries to stop him, but Happy's 400 yard drive just proves to be too much.

We loved the BILLY MADISON Quote-Along last year, and have been itching for an excuse to bring HAPPY GILMORE into the mix as well. We'll have subtitles on screen so we can all yell out our favorite lines (and oh my god, the moment when we scream, "The price is wrong, bitch!" will be worth the price of admission all by itself), and we'll start the show with a special golf ball driving competition. That should help draw a crowd.

Of course, you know what else would draw a crowd? A golfer with an arm growing out of his ass... Let me know if you know where I can find one of those. (Henri)
